A Charity Race Night in aid of The Tiny Hearts Appeal, Barnsley was held on Saturday 11th March in Rafters bar and was a sell out!
The Tiny Hearts Appeal @ Barnsley Hospital aims to raise £1 million to help fund a brand new special Baby Care unit at the hospital.
The new unit aims to provide an even better standard of care for all the special care babies and the most comfortable environment for all families and staff on the unit.
WOW!!! What a fantastic night was had by all. Lots of fun and hilarity whilst raising lots of money for the Tiny Hearts, Barnsley Appeal. A MASSIVE THANKYOU to all who contributed by either sponsoring a race, buying horse, buying a ticket for the event and/or betting on the actual evening. Stuart of R N Promotions who came and provided the actual races said that he has done over 100 race nights and never before had he seen such an amount raised. Especially the Auction race which in itself raised £455. As is the norm the owner of the winning horse received half of this amount with half been given to the charity however in this case the syndicate who bought the horse generously donated their winnings back to Tiny Hearts!!! THANK YOU!!!
OVER £1500 WAS RAISED
